I love those sleeves on that ribbon tie, how DO YOU DO THAT. So awesome.

Thank you! It's very easy with knit materials - I just choose my biggest zigzag stitch and a rather small spacing and stretch the material with both hands as far as it can go as I zigzag along the edge. Since it's a knit it'll try to shrink back to its original size, which gives you the fun edge. Something I learned from vegbee, I'm pretty sure.

3.   Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed



Invastion of the ribbon-tie neckline, four shirts with a simple alteration.

I was heavily inspired by the_naked_doll's Ten Minute Tee Recon to do some very quick alterations for myself and blupaisan.







For this one I sewed on a tube I turned from the original neckline, just to gather it a bit:



And this one I lettuce-edged the sleeves and bottom (first time! I love it so much!):



All I did was cut of the original neckline and turn it in to sew a casing for a ribbon. Cut the neck wider if you want a more scrunched look, like my purple one. Then I used a seam ripper to cut a little hole in the front and used a tapestry needle to thread through the ribbon. Voila! Very quick and satisfying.

I love that box. It looks very stylish. What are the dimensions?

Thank you! It's about 7" x 3.5" and 6.5" tall.

30.   Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed



Sprucing up with origami paper, I may use this as a lunchbox. Cheesy
I hope to put up reconstructed clothing soon too!

I was using this old lego box for storage, and when I got rid of the bits inside it I got those old crafty urges again.



I used two big sheets of the blue paper, and one and a half sheets of the smaller print.



After deciding I wanted to use the circles I had cut from the holes for the handles, I modeled the flowers off of the little white ones on the paper.



I finally coated the whole thing with mod podge to seal it. Now it's so nice I don't know what to do with it! What do you think? Lunchbox? Bits for inchies?

As an organizer, I love getting full questionnaires! Cheesy

A nice addition might be to cut the hem off the bottom and sleeves and sew a lettuce edge on them...

Wow that's exactly what I did! And yes, it looks great.
